We are rated very highly on Trip Advisor and have won their Certificate of Excellence for five years in a row, granting us ‘Hall of Fame’ status! A list of what we offer can be seen below the menu on the left, and more information about the hotel is spread further down the page and across the website.

The three sitting rooms are wonderful with stripped floors, gorgeous armchairs, crackling fires and an honesty bar, providing a uniquely home-like feeling. Many people meet and make friends while staying with us, taking advantage of the social areas and warm atmosphere. However, if you simply want a place to sleep and gain some peace and quiet, you will not be disappointed.

Beautiful things abound: a roll-top desk, a large collection of beautiful art spread throughout the building, and a courtyard herb garden. There are binoculars with which to scan the high seas (Ramsgate was home to the Commander of the Channel Fleet), an old fashioned gramophone player to play some old vinyls (of which we have a large collection), and books by the hundred.


Bedrooms at the front are smaller and cosy, but have the view, those at the back are bigger and quieter. The first floor suite has a coal fire and French windows that open onto covered balconies. You get crisp linen, duck-down pillows, LED Smart TVs with Freeview , turndown in the evening and excellent shower rooms. 19 of our bedrooms are located in the main two townhouses spread over 3 floors. Another 8 newly refurbished bedrooms are located in our recently acquired townhouse located only 39 steps away from the main hotel.

We are in the process of cataloguing our art and vinyl collections, which can be seen throughout the hotel. You will soon be able to see a sample of what we have on this website.


room-24We are ideally located within easy reach of the railway station, the ‘Blue Flag’ award-winning beach, the seafront, the yacht marina, the ferry terminal, local pubs and restaurants as well as a diverse selection of local shops in the town centre.

There are many excellent golf courses within the vicinity. There is ample on-street parking as well as a very small private, off-street car park. Please ask for a space.

We believe that the Royal Harbour Hotel is extremely good value for money, so whether you are here on business or just down for a few days of refreshing sea air, do give us a try.

We look forward to welcoming you.
